Nephrology patients and total dose infusion

In which nephrology patients is total dose infusion an advantage?

I think that the biggest advantages are seen in those patients who have predialysis associated anaemia or who are getting home peritoneal dialysis. The reason is that they are not prisoners; they don't have to come to the dialysis clinic three times a week.

Therefore, in a single setting, to avoid anywhere from 10-30 doses of intravenous iron in a different setting, a single total dose infusion can obviate all of those problems, says Dr. Michael Auerbach, Clinical Professor of Medicine, Georgetown University School of Medicine.
